Initially, the Redskins were optimistic that Guice had only sprained his MCL, and the former LSU star was in good spirits after the game, telling reporters, "all is well".

While the Redskins have been rotating their running backs in training camp, coaches have been pleased with Guice's development, and teammates anticipated him being the opening-game starter. Previous year at LSU, Guice was hampered by a hyperextended knee, limiting his snaps and forcing him to miss a game.

Washington took Guice with the 59th overall pick after the running back fell on draft night over concerns about his maturity. The three-for-all now drops to a two-for-all consisting of third-year back Rob Kelley and sophomore Oklahoma product Samaje Perine if the Redskins opt against bringing in outside help.

Injuries are one of the worst parts of sports.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are near an incentive-laden adjustment to the quarterback's 2018 contract.

"Playing late into the season the year before is definitely what we want to do, so we're not complaining about that, but it does affect the following season, there's no question about that", he said. The Redskins also announced tight end Manasseh Garner suffered an ACL injury during Thursday's game and will also miss the 2018 season.
